I'm an avid SciFi reader. I picked up the bug around 11 or so, and haven't slowed down since. Well, not much. I need sleep nowdays more than then, but at my best I used to polish of 3 novels in a night (and run around half asleep the next day. Current scifi has taken an odd turn, I believe it is called military scifi. It already had a venerable tradition, Heinlein's StarShip Troopers comes to mind (and don't prejudge the book from the movie, while one was loosely based on the other, it was only an approximation, and the novel did not mention the gore). The current crop tends towards space opera, but that's OK with me. I like the Honor Harrington series myself, though I can see that not being everyone's cup of tea. Another current title I would recommend is Von Neuman's War, where some really advanced Von Neuman machines start colonizing the solar system, and they really don't care if the planet's are occupied or not. Read any you'd like to share?
